Everyone knows about the 21 bends of Alpe d’Huez, this is bend 9. Bend 9 has everything you would want from an Alpe d’Huez hairpin. The assent goes around the outside which brings a short be welcome respite from the gradient and a view to die for. Which you may be doing anyway.
The descent has a fast entry and a clear view of the road so you can alter your line accordingly for maximum velocity and speed because the decent is where Alpe d’Huez really comes into its own. Not even the pro's get to take on the descent of Alpe d'Huez.
